Public input needed for the EV program in Idaho 

The Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) needs your help to determine the future of electric vehicle charging infrastructure in Idaho. The US Department of Transportation recently announced the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Program, an initiative to fund strategically placed charging stations across the country in an effort to establish an interconnected network for cross-country travel for electric vehicles (EV). You can learn more about this program by visiting ITD’s website here.
ITD is inviting Idahoans to share their feedback about where these charging stations should be built, focusing on locations near Idaho’s interstates and highways. Once this information is compiled, ITD will present its findings to the NEVI Program at the US Dept. of Transportation to help guide future EV infrastructure rollout. To learn more about the program and voice your ideas, please attend one of seven public meetings scheduled throughout the state upcoming this month:

We also encourage you to participate in an online survey by clicking here. The survey will take about eight minutes to complete and is helpful in informing the state electric vehicle infrastructure plan. The more data we collect, the more the Idaho plan will reflect the will of Idahoans statewide.

Please help fellow Idahoans voice their feedback by sharing this information on appropriate platforms and amongst contacts. We look forward to hearing your ideas! If you have additional questions or would like more information from ITD about the Idaho EV Infrastructure Plan, please email  info@evidaho.org

Idaho Power offers electric vehicle supply equipment funding

Eligible Idaho Power business customers may apply for funding to install Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE charging stations) for electric passenger vehicles, forklifts or other transportation technology. This is how the TVCCC is partnering with Idaho Power in the project:

  • TVCCC will provide up to $15,000 during calendar year 2022 toward Idaho Power EVSE Level 2 charging stations in Ada County and Canyon County. TVCCC will be able to fund two projects at the full $7,500 level.
  • Idaho Power will identify potential projects for TVCCC funding and would seek permission from the customer before discussing the application with TVCCC.
  • TVCCC funding must be approved by its Board of Directors before funds are committed. Funding is limited and applicants are not guaranteed funding.


TVCCC offers travel/training assistance opportunities

Keeping on top of the latest technologies and advances in the use of alternative fuels can be difficult, especially with limited travel/training budgets. The Treasure Valley Clean Cities Coalition wants to assist individuals, agencies, companies, etc., learn more about current trends and advances in alternative fuels and vehicles. Our continuing education program could help you or your organization by providing funding to help make an educational trip possible.
